Abstract: Abstract: Increasing number of people suffering from HIV/AIDS has influenced healthcare sectors. Irrational and discriminatory treatment of HIV/AIDS patient is the result of health professionals fear. Unfortunately, most of health professionals have this kind of perspective and practice about people living with HIV/AIDS. Lack of knowledge about ways of transmission can affect nurse’s behaviour in caring for HIV/AIDS patients. Fear of being affected by occupational exposure in contact to HIV/AIDS individuals and social stigma are two factor that cause to negative attitude. Educational and occupational training programs have led to decrease fear and inadequate knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS transmission. For planning and evaluating nursing care, it is necessary the truth about disease be identified.
